Q: I keep rolling off my sleeping pad. What can I do to sleep better?
— Lucy, Augusta, Maine
A: This is a very common complaint. Luckily, there could be a simple fix. Many people tend to overinflate their sleeping pad. Blowing it up bigger will actually cause you to roll off.
Try this: Once it’s inflated, lie on it, and then open the valve briefly to let a little air out — that way, the pad conforms to your body.
